Adrienne Fairhall: Learning and variability in birdsong

Talk by Adrienne Fairhall from the University of Washington.  Given to the Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience, UC Berkeley.

Abstract

The birdsong system has become a paradigmatic example of biological learning. In this talk we will discuss how detailed biological responses can help this system to implement reinforcement learning.

In particular, we will discuss the potential role of a newly identified excitatory neural signal in basal ganglia and how it may help to modulate basal ganglia synchrony and the variability required for learning.
